No beard, no red suit--and no jolly deep voice either. But that hasn't stopped Maryann Conway from impersonating Santa Claus each of the last five Christmases for the Recreation and Leisure Services Department. Children can write to "Santa Claus, North Pole," care of the department, and Conway will write back, signing Santa's name on each letter. She has replied to as many as 50 letters a year. The children's letters are full of requests for brand-name toys and proclamations of love for Santa.

A nine-month study on the actual costs of many city services will be reviewed at a special City Council meeting today at 6 p.m.. The study found that the city does not charge the true cost of most services. For example, a special events permit, for which the city charges $100 for a nine-day event or $35 for a three-day event, actually costs the city $234 to process.

After a 17% drop in revenue this fiscal year, it is uncertain how well the city's Redevelopment Agency can continue to fund projects. The agency is building a $5-million Civic Center on Katella Avenue. It also gave $135,000 to the Smith's Food & Drug Center that opened in August at the intersection of Katella Avenue and Beach Boulevard. "With the state budget cuts, it puts in doubt what we'll be able to do in the future," said agency fiscal officer John Hartman.

Special-interest classes at the Recreation and Leisure Services Department offer instruction in a variety of subjects--yoga, darts, dog obedience training and, for the first time, flying. Beginning Jan. 19, Paul Nessel will teach a 10-week class called "Principles of Aviation." Nessel, 74, started flying in World War II. "Flying is really very simple, but it's not like learning how to drive a car," he said.
